Summer Dream

One of my assemblages, there are more here.

And from stranger shores, Carlos' are here. Happy exploring!

Edit: I was going to do a rant of some kind, but I am temporarily tired of the (figurative) sound of my own voice. Hope you all don't mind, I'm sure I will recover the will to rant shortly.

I like your blog! Please check mine out, it's a funny look at the life of a teacher who is also a first time, stressed out mom to a growing boy. A unique look into friends, family, and parenting.

Different! It actually took me a moment to realize those were little arms around the outer edge. I'm not sure what that says about me - or you for that matter. Very intriguing. I'll be back to see what else you have in store.

The way you combine these things has a haunting effect, these little arms reaching out for help ... and yet, the main character is positive, wonder how you do it. Thank you so much for your comment on my blog, you gave me the solution to a long pondered question!

Amazing artwork. When I look at this piece, I easily see it on a roadshow that will definitely exist, even if it's held in space-sin gravity thousands and thousands of years from now. And I see the lucky person with at stunned face to hear its value. Yep, I see it.

You have a unique vision.

Oh! And I'm surprised no one thus far mentioned the tamborine. Cool cool cool way cool!

I like it. The first thing I saw was a ship's wheel. Pieces like this are fun because everyone has a different interpretation.

Thanks, everyone. I'm glad people enjoy the image. Sometimes I just need to put up a picture when I feel I've been pontificating too much. Eva, I am thrilled that I was helpful. I like your blog very much.

this gives with in arm's reach a new meaning. my brother used to do a lot of these, i wish i had pictures.

Love this-- the arms are very hindu goddess like

it reminds me of Grandma Prisbey -- she collected doll heads and arms and decorated her garden at Bottle Village with them. We used to go when I was a youngster. I don't know if the place still exists.

Squirrel - Thanks for the quote, as for the other, you may be observing more closely than others.

Ah, you've inspired me to get "those old slides" scanned. I used to spend a lot of time doing a similar kind of Cornell box-work. When I switched coasts from West to East I abandoned most of it in a never-returned-to basement... But I did photograph it. Stay tuned, and thanks for the nudge.

ArtSparker said...

Nemo - your sis already spilled the beans about the existence of your assemblages.-but I am looking forward to seeing the photographic record

Your blog is like a Pandora’s Box of rare and precious objects – I keep stumbling through hidden doors and uncover new and fantastic stuff. Your assemblages blow me away. And your tile work is absolutely gorgeous.
It’s a regular treasure hunt . . .
